Final design unveiled
Port Vale has revealed the crest it will be using on the squad’s shirts for the 2013-14 campaign.
Following the announcement that supporters had voted in favour of reinstating a similar badge to the one worn in the 1950s, the club has now finalised the crest which will be showcased on the kits next season.
The crest includes suggested amends from Port Vale’s fan-base, including incorporating the Staffordshire knot and including the club’s founding date of 1876. The slogan ‘For all who have gone before’ will no longer be included in the crest, as originally planned, but will be incorporated within the shirt itself.
Port Vale Chairman, Paul Wildes, said: “We have listened to supporters and their suggestions and are pleased with the final crest, which we feel accurately reflects our industrial past in addition to our Staffordshire roots.
“I’m looking forward to seeing the crest on the new shirts next season, which will also reflect the rich history and heritage of our club and Stoke-on-Trent, as well as the opportunity to make the shirt unique.“I’m sure our supporters will not be disappointed and look forward to revealing details of the kits as soon as we are able.”
